Okay so I missed day 2. But that was due to some depression that keeps to want to keep me down. It won’t yesterday. But today I seem to be able to function on some level in order to be able to work on my story and to type a short blog post.
Are any of you suffering from mental illness that makes it hard for you to focus or to even care about your writing, yet in your heart you know you want to keep writing? That is what keeps me going. Knowing that in my heart I love to write and that I feel better doing it.
Do you feel better after you’ve written a poem, short story, or novel? Or haven just written anything? I often wonder why this is but I figure it’s because it’s a passion and gift that God has given us so to use it, of course it would feel good. But that’s just my opinion. I’m sure you have your own.
So how far are you on day 3. I’m almost to 2000 words and I would have beat that if I had written yesterday. But I’m going to write as much as I can today. I’m cleaning 3 rooms and washing the bedding and in some cases toys for those rooms and then putting them back together. So I have been up and down and not getting the time I wished for. However, I have been ale to make some decent progress today regardless of the chores I’ve had to do.
But I must go for now to finish up the laundry and feed my son who just informed me he was hungry.
So all my fellow Campers I wish you the best of luck meeting your word count at the end of the month.
